A.S. Series 77-37
The relationship between mineral levels in the diets of growing-finishing swine and the type of confinement system in which that are raised is not fully understood. In a previous report (A.S. Series 75-52), we reported the performance data of an experiment designed to provide more information in this area. Reported herein is the information on bone stregnth and bone development as related to floor type and calcium and phosphorus levels in the diet.
